Mouth watering.

Sophia for me. I don't care for italian desserts unless they are wearing a muscle shirt and have a nice italian sausage.

I am watching William Macy in Edmond. He is going to a bunch of strip clubs.

Titus, I am told that Italian circus performers have the Italian sausage maneuver down pat.

I love Itlian pastries. But, I really love canoli. My mom used to make these large cream puffs with canoli filling, they were the best.

I also like- the name I forget- those little fried dough balls that are drizzled with honey.

I voted for Sophia Loren and her creamy goodness.

She made me an offer I couldn't refuse.

I'm voting for Napoleons because they're good, but also because I like short men.

Seeing sfogliatelli and spinge makes me suspicious though. We have an Italian bakery and they never make those. I'm being gypped!

I've never even heard of sfogliatelli or spinge.

Tragically I've never cannoli, either, and I can't remember if I've had a napoleon.

Now, Sophia Loren, on the other hand. I reference Dennis Miller:

"If you’re a twelve-year old boy and you’re watchin’ the movie Boy on a Dolphin, and Sophia Loren crawls up outta the Aegean Sea after sponge-diving. She’s twenty-eight years old, she’s standin’ there on the deck of that boat in that see-thru gauze top, drippin’ wet, all over the boat deck…

If you’re a twelve year old boy and you can watch that, and you still wanna fuck the captain…you’re gay!”

Yeah.

Leave the gun, take the cannoli.

After the cannoli, finish off with a nice Sophia.

But to "no" them is to love them.

Darcy said...

Hee.

Gotta be the cannoli! (Cute Dennis Miller quote though, Blake. Love him.)

Is spinge related to splew?

Actual food, cannoli, hands down. Reality of the situation, look at who's winning.

Jason (the commenter) said...

I never knew napoleons were Italian!

Ron said...

Can I vote for a Sophia Loren/Monica Belluci sandwich -- filled with cannoli cream?

'cause if I can't...I ain't playin'!

I'll have two scoops of Sophia. Half the fat and fewer calories to boot.

I predict a Sophia Loren landslide.
